Vein Center in California Describes the Diagnosis & Treatment of Varicose Veins and Spider Veins

August 29, 2020

spider and varicose vein treatment center

Step 1: The vein doctors at our vein center in California carefully examine your varicose veins and spider veins.

If you have a consultation with the board-certified vein doctors at our vein center in California, you may wonder what you can expect from your first appointment. During your initial consultation, our American board-certified vein specialists carefully examine your varicose veins and spider veins, looking for signs and symptoms of vein disease.

Most people think varicose veins and spider veins are cosmetic issues. However, that’s false — varicose veins and spider veins are usually caused by a circulatory disorder called chronic venous insufficiency. Venous insufficiency is a condition in which your vein valves collapse and blood accumulate in your leg veins. The continued accumulation of blood in leg veins eventually leads to varicose vein problems, including varicose veins and spider veins.

In fact, varicose veins is an advanced vein condition caused due to excessive blood accumulation in your leg veins. That’s why varicose veins look like dense masses of knotted ropes protruding from the skin’s surface. The presence of varicose veins and spider veins indicates that you’ve probably had venous insufficiency for a long time, even if you weren’t aware of it.

Venous insufficiency is a common condition, but it’s extremely under-diagnosed because its initial signs and symptoms can be mistaken for exhaustion or aging. At its earliest stage, venous insufficiency leads to mild and benign symptoms, such as restless leg syndrome, leg heaviness, leg swelling, leg pain, frequent leg cramps, and throbbing leg veins. If left untreated, the signs and symptoms gradually escalate, leading to skin disease, skin discoloration, varicose veins, leg ulcers, and deep vein thrombosis.

Are you wondering what you can expect from your varicose vein treatment? In this article, our vein center in California describes every step involved in vein procedures.

As such, during your initial consultation, our board-certified vein doctors ask you questions to determine how long you’ve had venous insufficiency. They also ask about your medical history, medication, and any other symptoms you’re experiencing.

Step 2: Our board-certified vein specialists administer ultrasound exams to identify vein disease.

Physical and visual examination of varicose veins and spider veins can only go so far. It will give our vein specialists an approximate understanding of whether you have vein disease, but they’ll still need to confirm their findings. That’s where Duplex Ultrasound comes in.

Duplex Ultrasound is one of the most effective ultrasound exams to identify venous insufficiency, the root cause of varicose veins and spider veins. Our board-certified vein doctors have specialized training in vascular imaging. Ultrasound exams allow them to visualize the direction of the blood flow in your leg veins, which, in turn, reveals if you have underlying venous insufficiency.

Step 3: The vein doctors discuss your minimally invasive treatment options for varicose veins and spider veins.

Our vein doctors use the results of ultrasound exams to recommend the ideal minimally invasive treatment options for your specific needs. They will discuss your ultrasound exam results, lifestyle, aesthetic expectations, insurance coverage, budget, and other details necessary to curate the perfect varicose vein treatment plan.

If you have underlying venous insufficiency, our vein doctors will recommend medical treatments (radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, or VenaSeal), followed by cosmetic treatments to remove the superficial varicose veins and spider veins (ambulatory phlebectomy or sclerotherapy). If you don’t have underlying vein disease, our vein specialists will only recommend ambulatory phlebectomy or sclerotherapy to improve your legs’ cosmetic appearance.

Step 4: The American board-certified vein doctors perform minimally invasive varicose vein treatments.

Our American board-certified vein doctors only perform cosmetic treatments if you don’t have underlying venous insufficiency or after treating the underlying vein disease. First, our vein doctors will perform minimally invasive varicose vein treatments, such as radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, or VenaSeal.

During these minimally invasive procedures, the vein doctors will use catheters or injections to deliver thermal energy, laser energy, or medical adhesives into the diseased saphenous vein’s walls, under ultrasound guidance. The thermal energy, laser energy, and medical adhesives will seal or collapse the diseased saphenous veins. The accumulated blood will flow to healthier veins, restoring smooth blood circulation to the heart.

Step 5: The board-certified vein specialists remove the superficial varicose veins and spider veins.

After the primary varicose vein treatment, our vein doctors may recommend cosmetic treatments for the visible varicose veins and spider veins on your skin’s surface. The best minimally invasive vein procedures for superficial varicose veins and spider veins are ambulatory phlebectomy and sclerotherapy.

During ambulatory phlebectomy, the vein doctors create incisions on your skin’s surface to physically remove the superficial varicose veins. During sclerotherapy, the vein doctor injects sclerosant solution into the spider veins to fuse their vein walls, hardening them into scar tissues that eventually get absorbed by the body, fading away from the skin’s surface.

Step 6: Immediate discharge from vein clinics with recovery guidelines.

Minimally invasive vein procedures are in-office and outpatient procedures that conclude within an hour with no hospitalization or downtime. As such, you’ll be discharged from our vein clinic immediately after the treatment, and you can resume most of your daily activities immediately. Our board-certified vein specialists will provide a few recovery guidelines, such as walking frequently and wearing compression stockings. But other than that, you can resume your daily life uninterrupted.
